Please note the following regarding deadlines:

  • The MCAT must be written within five years of the application deadline and the scores released to Memorial University prior to the deadline date. MCAT scores written prior to September 2, 2015 are expired. Any applicants with expired scores must have a current MCAT score in order to submit a complete application.
  • MCAT scores must be released by the applicant to Memorial University. Scores are not forwarded to Admissions by AAMC without the student's permission. 
  • Official transcripts must have an issue date from the applicant’s educational institution on or before the deadline date. 
                                          All transcripts, MCAT scores, and references MUST be sent to:

  • Reference letters need 3-4 working days after submission to CaRMS to appear on the applicant’s file. All references must be submitted to CaRMS by the deadline date. It is the applicant's responsibility to follow up with references and adhere to this deadline. 

Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants are strongly encouraged to monitor their CaRMS account regularly to ensure their application is complete and follow-up with their institutions and/or references as required before the deadline date. The Admissions Office cannot confirm if documents and references have been received. As documents are received at CaRMS, applicants can confirm receipt by monitoring their account. Application fees are non-refundable.   
Applicants selected for an interview will be interviewed on November 14, 2020. The Faculty of Medicine uses a hybrid of a Traditional Interview and Multiple-Mini Interviews (TaMMI) as well as a 30-minute Situational Judgement Test (SJT) under test conditions. Due to the structure of the TaMMI process, all interviews will occur on November 14, 2020 and no deviation from this date can be accommodated. Deferral interviews are not granted.
